Now that's the matter of fact stuff out of the way, here come some lovely, bright and colourful new designs to help get us all in the mood for summer!....
Last month I mentioned that I loved the idea of the #100dayproject over on Instagram, but was concerned that it would be a bit tough to do 100 consecutive days, as I have lots of different projects on the go. It seemed too big a commitment to do both the challenge and keep on top of everything else.
Not wanting to be totally defeated, I decided to do my own version of it. I want to do 100 days of creating something on a wildlife and nature theme from around the world. It may take considerably longer than 100 consecutive days, but like the tortoise in Aesops fable, slow and steady can get you across the finish line...eventually!
I've started with hot tropical places because it's been so cold and dreary lately, it's my way of getting some form of summer into my life and hopefully share that vibe with everyone who sees my work develop too.
This blog post shares some of the images I've been working on throughout April and I will continue to work on through the next few months...
Some of the designs are gradually finding their way onto my Society 6 Store and are ready to buy, printed on demand, on all sorts of homewares and accessories...
I am throughly enjoying this project and am looking forward to developing and sharing more this coming month...
To see the new designs as they develop, here is where you can follow me over on Instagram:
To find these new designs on all kinds of everything over at my Society 6, here is a link:
I hope you enjoyed seeing how this new work develops.
Have a lovely month!
We've almost made it through January, the days are starting to feel a little longer as the daylight hours stretch a little more each day. It's a beautiful day here today, bright sunshine with a shimmery, frosty, sparkle everywhere. I don't mind winter when it looks like this.
However, to me, January always feels a bit of a tricky month. It feels like a stiff shift of gears after the Christmas break. Where a big push is needed to get back in the flow of work and pick up projects from where they were before the holidays, whilst at the same time planning for the year to come. It feels like the passage of one year to the next brings with it a big sense of time marching on and a niggle that we should all be doing more because there goes another year.
Yet look again and there's spring, quietly resting in the flower beds and hedgerows, gently waking up, shaking off the winter slowly, gathering itself ready for what lies ahead. Knowing that the best is yet to come.
I think we can all learn a lot from spring - nature's start to the year...
Which is why I've been busy developing lots of spring designs for my Spoonflower and Etsy shops and they are all up and ready to be seen bursting forth with all their floral prettiness...
Over on my Etsy shop I have a January sale running until the end of the month on all illustration prints and gift wraps - which includes these brand new gift wrap designs as an introductory offer....
I've also added some new pieces to my Society 6 shop, including this phone case.
Best of all, one of the pots of daffodil bulbs that I popped around our house at the beginning of the month has bloomed today.
What a wonderful sight!
My eldest daughter thinks I'm a little crazy for getting so excited about seeing a daffodil bloom. She is 10. My reply to her was ' To me, seeing my first spring bloom of the year is as exciting as Christmas day is to you!'.
She still thinks I've lost the plot. I can live with that!

I hope you have a lovely week.
